Cloud Life : Future living concept



Cloud life is a business model in which space is not rented out with a specific fixed use (e.g. bedroom, office, exhibiton space), but with completely flexible functions, digitally chosen and customized by the customer.

By using an flexible, interactive and robotic interior, the operator offers a large variety of functions and space which users can choose and customize, creating a space perfectly suited to the needs of a specific users at that specific time.

Retrofit existing or place in new buildings (which generates faster spread) Swarm logic → even when parts break down, system keeps operating Create the specific space you need, based on functions, shape and size. (pay per 5m2 / h)

Financial Viability

When renting out space, for example in the traditional examples as a hotel or flexible work places, the customer pays for the time he uses particular space and facilities. Therefore, to maximize profits occupancy has to be maximized (regarding time, facilities and space). Cloud life makes this maximum occupancy possible with its completely flexible interior, answering to the large variety of demand and desires of its customers.

The Cloud Life interior installation is designed to retrofit in existing buildings, introducing a new and smart way to rent out the surplus of vacant office buildings.

Started designing with finacial viability for property managers and users in mind.

Compare to current prices per hour with exact numbers

  From property managers perspective
  From users perspective (specify target group exactly: why them)	

Variable prices based on demand, within a range (reference plane tickets)

Spread of Cloud Life to many locations enhances individual memberships

Members have option to book a space, not rent/own (use references)



Show each part in the model seperately

Wall (is also door, lighting and shelving system)

Bed (combine as many single beds as you like)

Desk (chair included, combine or unfold for bigger desk)

Final full scale model

Using the livestream of our prototype, we get a live feed of changes we make in our model through the internet.

- More types of furniture which will be better adjustable
- More precision instead of 500x500mm grid
- More flexibility in all directions, not just orthogonally
